INTRODUCTION. 






\ 



It is not certain whether 02ir Gibsons are of English oi 

Scottish origin ; England, however, is generally the ascribed 

birthplace of John Gibson, the pioneer of 1634 in Cambridge, 

Massachusetts, an ascription which, if not based upon proof, 

1 may be based upon the fact that migration from Scotland to 

^ America was not common at that date. Although several 

, families followed James VI of Scotland (James I of England) 

J to England in 1603, and during his long reign others settled 

3 on the confiscated lands in Province of Ulster, northern Ireland, 



"^^ and were the ancestors of the Scottish-Irish element, it was not 

V until about the beginning of the i8th century that Scottish 

\ ■ immigration into the American colonies fairly set in, either 

\ direct from the. mother home or by way of Ireland where many 

families had taken refuge from the religious persecutions in 

Scotland under Charles II (1660-1685). Another significant 

fact is that John's children married into English families, 

hardly the case had he been a Scot cherishing a Scot's love 

of clan and native heather. 

One of the New York Gibson branches maintains that our 
pioneer came from London and shows arms — azure, chevron 
argent between three storks rising proper^ and bearing as many 
crescents sable ; — crest, a squire's helmet above which, out of a 



INTRODUCTION. 

ducal coronet cr, a dexter arm embowed in armor garnished or^ 
holding a battle ax sable ; and in the happy interpretation of 
another, " its component parts seem to be suggestive of our 
ancestors, the crescents indicating growth, the helmet safety, 
while the storks are observant and watchful, and the battle ax 
comes in for defensive force and the cutting away of opposi- 
tion — and our race has fulfilled its mission ! " One of the 
Boston Gibson branches holds, and has held for four genera- 
tions, arms — quarterly ist and 4tli gules^ a stork argent^ beaked 
and membered or^ between three crescents of the 2d {argent) ; 
2d and 3d argent^ chevron sable between three mullets gules 
pierced or^ — crest, on a wreath of the colors {gules and argenf)^ 
the top of an embattled tower gules^ thereon a stork argent 
beaked and membered or and with its wings elevated ; — motto, 
" Casis tutissima virtus^ If not conclusive that our John 
belonged to the Gibsons of I^ondon, Cumberland, Essex, North- 
umberland or Lancaster, the last migrating from Scotland to 
England during the reign of James I (1603-1649), and all five 
of whose arms bear a close resemblance, or that he belonged 
to the other Gibsons whose arms were confirmed in Stavely in 
lower division of the Wapentake of Claro in West Riding of 
Yorkshire, or that he belonged elsewhere in England, or that 
he was one of the usual traditional two, three or four brothers 
coming from Scotland — it is sufficient to know that he was 
John Gibson and left as legacy the escutcheon of an honest 
man. 

The following pages do not purport to be a full Gibson 
genealogy, more a record of a part of this numerous family ; 



INTRODUCTION. 

it has been impossible to reach all its members, and of those 
reached several have preferred to withhold information, some 
unable to furnish much or any, and again, others have given 
hearty co-operation and valuable assistance ; there are also 
Gibsons whoso ancestry is not sufficiently clear to determine 
if they belong to our Gibson race or to one of the many others 
in this country, and they are therefore necessarily omitted. 
Data have been gathered from town, church, court and war 
records, family Bibles, local histories, printed and manuscript 
genealogical and other papers, public documents, private letters 
and personal knowledge ; and however incomplete and open to 
criticism and correction this Record may be, it is written in 
the spirit of kinship, as such inscribed to every descendant of 
John of Cambridge, and published

I John Gibson of Cambridge, Mass., " y" newe 
towne " of 1631, Newe Towne or Newtowne of 1632 and 
name changed to Cambridge May 2, 1638, b. (probably 
England) about 1601 ; d. Cambridge, 1694 aged 93 
years ; m. first, Rebecca — (bur. Dec. i, 1661 in Rox- 
bury burying ground, the burial recorded by Rev. John 
Eliot, pastor Roxbury First church : " Moneth 10 day 
I — 1661 — The wife of Goodman Gibson of Cam- 
bridge"); m. second, July 24, 1662, Joan, widow of 
Henry Prentice of Cambridge, " planter," on whose 
estate in 1663 " his reli6l widow Joan, and John Gib- 
son, Aer now hzisband^ administrators." 

Mr. Gibson was in Cambridge in 1634 and made free 
of the corporation ( The Governor and Company of the 
Massachusetts Bay in New England) " 17"" of the 3^^ 

O 

mo. @ 1637" by Julian calendar in use till 1752, 
equivalent to May 17, 1637 by Gregorian or present 
calendar. Whether he settled first in Cambridge and 
when he came over are not known as the year and 
name of ship are lost ; it is probable, however, that 



JOHN GIBSON 

he came neither with the Braiiitree com pan}' in Cam- 
bridge Aug. 14, 1632, nor with Rev. Thomas Hooker 
who followed his people Sept. 4, 1633 ; he first appears 
on Cambridge records of Ang. 4, 1634: ''To John 
Gibfon 6 Ackrs," in the list of lots granted in West- 
end, that part of the town l)ing between Sparks, 
Wyeth and Garden streets. Harvard and Brattle 
sqnares and Charles river. His honse which stood 
on the east of Sparks street, not far np the hill 
from the path (Brattle street) to Watertown, was 
built before " 10"' October 1635," the date in 7'//e 
Regestere Bookc of the Lands and Howfes in iJie 
Newtowne i6jj under which is recorded : "John Gib- 
fon. Jn Weftend one lioufe with Planting Grounde 
Aboute Six Ackers Watter Towne Pales louth weft 
John Arnould North w^eft Nathauiell Elly North 
eaft Edward Elmer fouth eaft ; " in 1639 he bought 
of Elmer the 3 acres adjoining on the southeast 
which extended his house-lot to Garden street. Fam- 
ily tradition says that the Gibsons planted linden trees, 
and if tradition and boundaries can be made to agree 
perhaps " the old house by the lindens," corner 
Brattle and Sparks streets, familiar by Longfellow's 
poem llie Open Windoit\ may have stood on land once 
owned by John Gibson ! 

Mr. Gibson doubtless belonged to the church formed 
by Rev. Mr. Hooker on his arrival in 1633 ; on the 
removal in 1635 and 1636 of the pastor and most of the 
families to Hartford (Conn.) he became one of the suc- 
ceeding society or First church organized Feb. i, 1636 
by Rev. Thomas Shepard and his band of new-comers, 
and on the earliest list of members (1637) are "John 
Gibson — Mrs. Rebecca Gibson;" also a church entry 
of "11"' mo. 1658" [Jan. 1659] I'eads : "John Gibson 
and Rebecca his wife, both members in f. c. Their 
children : Rebecca now joyned in full communion 
with the church at Watertown — Mary — Martha — John

—Samuel— baptized in this church." He continued 
this membership until his death and during these 
nearly sixty years worshiped till 1650 in the original 
building, corner Dunster and Mt. Auburn streets, 
and afterwards in its successor, southwest corner of 
the college yard (Harvard) ; and not only with change 
of sittings shown by town record of Jan. 19, 1662, 
"the committee for seating the people in the meet- 
inghouse appoint Jno. Gibson to sit where Mr. Day 
was wont to sit," but also under change of pastors, 
Thomas Shepard 1636-1649, Jonathan Mitchell 1650- 
1668, Urian Oakes 1671-1681, Nathaniel Gookin 
1682-1692. 

In addition to his " nyne acr" house-lot in the 
West-end Mr. Gibson had other real estate in Cam- 
bridge, namely : 5 acres in the great swamp or Fresh 
pond meadows, entered in the Proprietors' Records 
" Aprill. 4. 1636," under "A record of the names of 
the men who were purchafers & haue proprieties in 
the frefhe pond meadow and their quantitie of Acers 

Acers" 

—John Gibfone 5 which 5 acres he sold in 1643 to 
Nathaniel Sparhawk ;— again, " Septemb 21"^ : 1639— 
three Acres of planteing grounde in the New Lotts 
next Manotomie " [Menotomy or the Second parish 
in 1732, West Cambridge in 1807, Arlington since 
1867] ;— granted by the town in 1645 " lott 10 John

Rocks " near Metonomy river (Ale wife brook) meadow, 
"layd out" to him in 1648 and which he sold the 
same year to Edward Danforth ; — lot no. 52 of So 
acres granted by vote of the church June 9, 1652, in 
Shawshine (Shavvshin), the large tract awarded 1644/ 5 
to Cambridge and May 29, 1655 set oif as the original 



JOHN GIBSON 

town of Billerica ; — 3 acres in the fifth Division of 
"lands layd out on the South Side Charles River" 
in 1662, the territory including both Cambridge Vil- 
lage or New Cambridge set off as Newton in 1691 
and Little Cambridge or the Third parish set off as 
Brighton in 1807 ; — " twenty acc^'s & three comons " 
at the drawing of lots and interests in the cow com- 
nions (Cambridge common) under entry of " feb 
27"" 1664 And march the 27* 1665;" — finally, 
under date of " Novemb"" 29'" 1689," lot no. 103 of 12 
acres in the first Division and lot no. 64 of 12 acres 
in the second Division, " the land that was formerly 
Coiiion called by the Name of Cambridge Rocks." 

That he was a husbandman and not an artisan is in- 
dicated by the " planteing grounde " and a record that 
John Gibson agreed with the town May 8, 1637, to sum- 
mer 100 cows for ^20. There is no evidence that he 
ever held any church office and of town offices only 
minor ones — appointed Mar. 15, 1676 to view fences 
and in 1678 to drive West-field, the arable land west of 
West-end often called West-end-field, bounded north by 
Garden street, east by Wyeth street, south by Vassall 
lane and west by Fresh pond meadows. His name 
occurs only once in lawsuits on Middlesex county court 
records, the suit in 1660 of "Winifred Holman Pit. 
against John Gibson Sen'' and his wife et al.," brought 
as the result of the defendants having accused Mary 
Holman, daughter of widow Winifred, of being a witch; 
and at the hearing "3 day of Aprill," several months 
after the accusation, the finding for John Gibson was 
" costs of Court, fifteen shillings and ten pence." 

He led most likely a quiet life in the small commu- 
nity of his friends, the Dana, Hastings and other fam- 
ilies whose lionies were within sight of his own, such 
a life of quiet content that he signed "John Gibson " 
as nineteenth name on the list of one hundred and 
seven "inhabitants and householders of the towne," 



AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 5 

in an address " To the Honoured Generall Court of 
Massachusetts Coloiiie," dated " Cambridg the 17"' of 
the 8. 1664" and whose purport is told in the clerk's 
entry of Oct. 19, 1664, two days later : 

"The Court being mett together & informed that seuerall per- 
sons inhabitants of Cambridge were at the doore desiring liberty to 
make knowne theire errand were called in & M"" Edward Jackson 
M'' Rich Jackson M'' Edw Oakes & Deacon Ston : coming before 
the Court presented a peticon from the inhabitants of Cambridge 
w''*' was subscribed by very many hands in w*^** they testified & de- 
clared their good content & sattisfaction they tooke & had in the 
present goument in church & comwealth with their resolution to be 
assisting to & encouraging the same & humbly desiring all meanes 
might be vsed for the continuance & preservation theirof & at the 
same time & the next day seuerall peticons of like nature from Wo- 
borne Dorchester Redding Chelmsford Concord Billirrikey Bos- 
ton Dedham & Meadfield & also one from seuerall inhabitants of 
Roxbury all which are on file." 

The days of peaceful prosperity came to an end under 
the oppressive rule of the tyrant Governor Sir Edmund 
Andros, and early in 1688 a petition asking redress was 
sent to James II, signed by John Gibson and George 
Willow representing their neighborhood and giving 
their respective ages "about 87 and 86 yrs." Despite 
the forcible statement that "our title is now questioned 
to our lands, by us quietly possessed for near sixty 
years, and without which we cannot subsist" — the 
touching plea that " we are a poor people and have no 
way to procure money to defend our cause in the law, 
nor know we of friends at Court, and therefore unto 
your royal Majesty, as the public Father of all your 
subjects, do we make this our humble address for re- 
lief" — the pathetic closing words, "If we perish we 
perish" — despite these appeals for redress none came 
from the king, due perhaps to his abdication, and John 
Gibson died a poor man.

JOHN GIBSON 

Oct. 30, 1668, Sarah Pemberton (d. Oct. 10, 1676) ; 111. 
second, June 14, 1679, Mrs. Elizabeth (Remington) 
Stedman (d. before Dec. 11, 1680), widow of John 
Stedman of Cambridge ; m. third, Abigail — , execu- 
trix of his will dated Mar. 17, 1709/10 and proved Ap. 
15, 1710, under which she had "| improvements dur- 
ing widowhood." 

Mr. Gibson was a glover by occupation, and presum- 
ably a tanner as in 1679 the town staked out to him 
2 rods "in the Corner next to his pit for his trade;" 
by thrift and perseverance he amassed a comfortable 
competency, owning considerable property both sides 
Charles river. He was of a convivial turn of mind 
evident from the following court entry: "Cambridge 
Octob. I. 1672. Sam' Gibson being convicted of en- 
terteyneing some of the stud" [Harvard] contrary to 
Law is sentenced to be admonished and to pay a fine of 
forty shillings in money and he stands comitted untill 
it be p*^ ; " also evident from the " Records of the Acts 
of the hon*"'* Overseers of Harvard Colledge Camb''" 
21:3: 1678" which read : " Samuel Gibson was called 
before the Overseers & solemnly cautioned of entertain- 
ing any of the students in his houfe frequenting the 
Colledge or otherwife drawing them into his Com- 
pany;" and of same date "Js sentenced to pay a fine 
of forty shillings & costs." But, regardless of several 
admonitions and forty-shilling fines, this love for " com- 
pany of scholars " did not abate and was even trans- 
mitted to more than one of his numerous descendants ! 

He was a soldier in King Philip's war — private, on 
list of Capt. Joseph Sill's co. of foot Jan. 25, 1675/6, 
starting on order of Council, Nov. 2, 1675, reconnoi- 
tering near Marlboro, Sudbury and Groton and not 
reaching the Narragansett country, west side the Paw- 
tucket, till after the deathblow to the war, the Swam}) 
fight of Dec. 10, 1675 ; private, on list of Capt. John 
Cutler's CO. of foot July, 2.], 1676.

Mr. Gibson always resided in his native town and 
doubtless on the homestead in the West-end, his father 
deeding him Nov. 30, 1668, "3 acres and \ my house 
Cambridge;" there is no record that he ever owned 
any other real estate. 

Although a minor at the time of the suit " Holman 
versus Gibson" in 1660 he was one of the defendants 
and, boy like, must have been very vehement against 
the supposed witch, widow Winifred's daughter, as he 
was sentenced either to openly acknowledge in court 
that "he hath wronged and scandalously slandered 
Marye Holman, by speeches irregularly, rashly and 
sudden spoken," or refusing to do this, to pay the 
plaintiff five pounds ; of the two alternatives he wisely 
chose the former. 

He was a soldier in King Philip's war — private, on

home of King Philip ; private, on list of L-t. Edward 
Oakes' troopers Mar. 24, 1675/6, scouting near Marl-

daily routine of lal3or ; liis name appears on Colonial 
records as "John Gipson " under marginal entry: 
" II Octob 1670 ffree men to be admitted," an entry 
showing- that he was then a church member ; his name 
also appears from time to time on town records as 
holder of some small office, the last and most impor- 
tant, the appoiutment in 1678 " to view fences in West- 
field." At his death of small pox when only thirty- 
eight years of age, he left little property, and in the 
First church cash book is recorded Nov. 2, 1679, tlie 
contribution of ^6 19 s. 4 d. to his family, "they being 
in a low condition, they being visited by the small 
pox and under many wants." "An Inventory of the

Dea. Gibson was brought up by selectman Abiaham 
Holman of Cambridge, son of William and Winifred 
Holman, and after 1689 removed with him to Stow 
(incorporated May 16, 1683 and previously called both 
Pomciticut and Shabbukin, the Indian names of its 
two most notable hills) ; he continued a member of the 
Holman household till into 1703 when he moved to 
the northwest of Sudbury and settled north of Assabet 
river (Assabeth, Elisabeth, etc.) on a 60 acre farm 
"bounded westward by bounds of Stow, eastward by 
highway from Concord to Jewell's Mill, southwesterly 
by land Joseph Jewell, north by land John and Jonas 
Burk," and deeded him June 21, 1703 by Mr. Holman, 
joined by wife Sarah, " for divers good and weighty 
reasons moving me thereto but in special manner to 
shew my love unto and care of Timothy Gibson now 
living with me & hath done from a child." Mr. 
Holman a second time showed "love and good will" 
by deeding Nov. 29, 1708 to "Timothy Gibson, hus- 
bandman, Sudbury, 20 acres in Sudbury, north side of 
Assabeth river, meadow, the right of way to the 60 
acres;" he again testified the "love and affection I 
bear unto Timothy Gibson of Sudbury, husbandman," 
by a last gift Ap. 23, 171 1, of 10 acres in Sudbury, 



20 John GIBSON 

" soutli east of Assabetli river, bounded east by land 
Thomas Burk, south east upon the highway, south west 
upon my own 'land crossing the river to the 20 acres, 
and northerly by said 20 acres;" he also appointed 
Timothy Gibson executor of his will dated Sept. 1711, 
shortly before his death, and devising '' To wife Sarah, 
40 acres, house and barn, in Stow, butteth on Elsabeth 
river ; all personal property, one half of which to be 

at her disposal To nephews Abraham 

and Jeremiah Holman To Abraham 

Gibson, son of the executor," etc. On Mar. 27, 1712 
widow Sarah signed an agreement giving her entire 
iuterest to Timothy Gibson on condition that he pro- 
vided for her during life. 

Meanwhile Dea. Gibson had identified himself with 
the interests of his new home, and the name 

(not "timothy oibfon, jr." as sometimes printed) 
heads the second column of a list of thirt\ -one signers 
to this petition : 

"To: his Excelency Josep: Diidlv Ksquir Caplu Gfiierall aud

For some reason this humble petition was not granted 
at the time and it was as late as 1723 before the West 
precin(5t church was built at Rocky Plains (Sudbury 
Center), up to which date the one church of Sudbnry 
since its incorporation Sept. 4, 1639 had stood on the 
other side the "great River" [the Sudbury], in that 
part of the town set off Ap. lo, 1780 as East Sudbury 
and name changed to Waylaiid in 1835. It is doubtful 
if Dea. Gibson was one of this new society as his name 
is not among those who Mar. 18, 1724, "entered into 
and renewed a holv church Covenant," and it niav be 
that he had already left the old church and gone back 
to the Stow church which he had attended while a 
member of Mr. Holman's family. Another public im- 
provement, one of importance to Dea. Gibson, was the 
first bridging of the Assabet, the town voting Dec. 14, 
1715, that ''there shall be a horse bridge built over 
Assabeth river, and that the selectmen do order that }' 
bridge be erected and built over assabelh river between 
y' land of Timothy Gibson and Thomas Burts [Burk's] 
land." 

There is no record that Dea. Gibson ever pnrchased 
real estate in Sudbury ; that he owned property in 
Cambridge is seen from his deed of Dec. 24, 1713 con- 
veying to Isaac Watson for £']^ " a small piece of land 
in Cambridge, part of the lot known as Arringtons lot, 
containing \ an acre, bounded N. E. by the highway 
to Watertown, S. W. by land Rev. Mr. Brattle, S. E. 
by Holme's land, N. W. by rest of lot — also half the 
house on it." 



28 JOHN GIBSON 

He was a large land-owner in Lunenburg, Mass., the 
southern of two townships laid out as " y* South 
Town " in the Turkey hills' district in 1720 and incor- 
porated Aug. I, 1728 as Lunenburg. His name is not 
among the eighty original proprietors of 1721 and is 
first mentioned in The Early Records of the Tount of 
Lunenburg under entry : " Concord, June 25"" & 26 
1723 Ephraim Sautle Desires Leave to Sell his Lott in 
y^ South Town to Timothy Gibfon for his son Tim- 
othy," house-lot no. 33 drawn by Mr. Sautle at the 
first drawing May 23, 1721 ; and in The Proprietors* 
Records of the Toivn of Ltinenbiirg it is entered that 
house-lot no. 33 of \\\ acres was "granted unto Tim- 
othy Gibson by the Greate and General Courts Com- 
mittee " and surveyed for him Nov. 7, 1730. The 
latter book has also the following entries : 

"Lunenburg April the ly'*" 1729 Laid out to Timothy Gibfon by 
the Committee appointed two pieces of third Divifiou Land [about 
220 acres] the Rights ariefing from houfe Lott Number thirty three 
and feventy two. Lying near the Eaft fide of the pearl hill " [the 
hill west of the center of Lunenburg and in that part of the town set 
off Feb. 3, 1764 as Fitchburg]. 

" Lunenburg June the y'^ 17"' 1730. Survayed for Timothy Gibfon

[upland].

a half." Same date: "Survayed for Timothy Gibfon House Lott 
Number 72 the Contents of Which is forty fix acres and a quarter" 
[drawn by Benjamin Prescott at the first drawing and granted to 
Timothy Gibson prior to Ap. 17, 1729]. 

" Lunenburg March the 18"' 1730/1 Survayed for Timothy Gibfon 
2'^ Divifion number 69 the Contents of Which is 60 acres [upland] In 
the fouth east part of the townfhip."

ten acres of Land in faid Townfhip for an Equevilent to what is want- 
ing in his Houfe Lott and fecond Divifion Lying on the Eafterly 
fide of the pearl hill adjoyuing to his own third Divifion." 

Although Dea. Gibson never lived in Lunenburg, 
nor did his son Timothy, he sent four younger sons, 
John, Arrington, Isaac and Reuben, known in local

history as " the Gibson brothers ' ' and men of such 
great size, strength and courage that several anecdotes 
are related of their personal prowess, and it is said that 
" the Indians standing on the brow of Pearl hill and 
carefully watching these brave, athletic brothers, did 
not dare attack them ! " 

In addition to Mrs. Sarah Holman's gift of " 40 acres, 
house and barn," Dea. Gibson had other property in 
Stow — lots in the second, third, fourth and fifth Divi- 
sions, about 100 acres in all, the surveys recorded in 
the proprietors' book between Dec. 24, 1721 and Jan. 
27, 1729; — 4 acres and 25 rods on Pomciticut hill 
' ' bounded west by my own land, south by John Jewell's, 
east by Sudbury, and north by land of Jonas Burk," 
deeded him Dec. 6, 1728 by Rev. John Gardner of 
Stow ; — " 2| acres in Stow bounded north by Burk's 
land, west on widow's premises, south east on Gibson 
house on the Sudbury and Stow line," purchased Feb. 
24, 1731/2 from the widow of Jonas Burk ; as the deed 
of Dec. 6,1728 is to "Timothy Gibson of Sudbury" 
and that of Feb. 24, 173I//2 to "Timothy Gibson of 
Stow," his removal to Stow was between these dates 
and perhaps by merely moving to another part of his 
home farm which lay on both sides the town line. He 
is entered on Stow records as selectman 1734, 1735, 
1736, 1739, and as "dissenting to ^60 for Rev. John 
Gardner, May 17, 1736." Unfortunately First church 
has no records earlier than 1774, but doubtless it was 
in this church that he held his office of deacon under 
the pastorate of Rev. Mr. Gardner, successor in 171 7 of 
Rev. John Eveleth who had been called in 1700 by 
thirty-two proprietors of Stow, among whom were 
Abraham Holman and Simon, Isaac and Nathaniel 
Gates, the foster-father and three brothers-in-law of 
Timothy Gibson. 

Dea. Gibson's homestead in Stow lay on the southern 



30 ,1()I1X (JIBSOX 

slope of Poinciticut hill (also spelled Ponipociliciit, 
Pomseticut, Poiiipositticutt, etc., pronounced Pom si t- 
cut and name chanoed to Summer liill). Ten years 
before his death he deeded on certain conditions, " my 
house and 50 acres in Stow" to his son Stephen, and 
like deedino^s continued in turn from sire to son iintil 
the Gibson home for nearly a ceutur}- was sold in 1823 
to strangers and in 1826 became the property of the 
Maynard family who call it Summer Hill farm ; on 
April 19, 1871 the northwest of Sudbury including the 
Assabet, and the northeast of Stow including Pomciti- 
cut hill, each comprising land once owned by the Gib- 
sons, were incorporated as Maynard. Today a tall 
flag staff graces the summit of the old hill where in 
years gone bv juvenile Gibsons must have often climbed 
"to view the smiling landscape o'er."

the vicarage at Ilorsemonden, the other in the parish church at 
East Fairleigh, the latter entered thus : 

"Marl Dolor Davis and Margerye Wilerd were maryed 
1624 I y*^ 29th day of Marche 1624." 

Mr. Davis came over iu 1634, his wife and three children fol- 
lowing early the next year ; he was accompanied by his brother- 
in-law Simon Willard who was one of the founders of Concord, 
captain of foot in 1646, major in 1654, and at whose death in 
1673, " the colony lost one of its most distinguished members." 
The proprietors' records of Cambridge ( The Regestere Booke) 
under date of June 4, 1635, read as follows : " Dollard Dauis one

ony of New Plymouth in New England place him in Duxbury, 
Mass., taking the oath of fidelity, proposed as freeman Mar.

in the Cape Cod town of Barnstable, propounded as freeman 
June 4, 1645 and admitted June 2, 1646; on Aug. 27, 1648, 
"Dolor Davis and his wife being dismissed from the Church 
att Duxbury was joyned to ours," and while in Barnstable he 
was surveyor of highways, constable, etc. In 1655 he left Ply- 
mouth colony and returning to the " Massachusetts Bay," 
bought some 150 acres including house and lot, in Concord ; he 
was, however, back again in Barnstable in 1666, remaining 
there until his death. Children : * John of Barnstable b. Eng-

Mr. Gibson as namesake of ]\Ir. Abraham Hoi man 
received under his will of 171 1, on the condition of pay- 
ing " to the legatees ten (10) pounds after my decease," 
25 acres in Stow including 5 acres of meadow. He 
must have removed from the parental home in Sudbury 
to Stow about the time of his marriage as his various 
deeds of lands in Stow are made to " Abraham Gibson 
of Stow" — Jiily 3, 1724 from Richard Whitney of 
Stow, 2 acres or more; — Jan. 8, 1725 from his brothers- 
in-law Deliverance and Thomas Wheeler, 10 acres, 
"great meadow," ;^30 ; — Jan. 14, 1725 from Timothy 
Gibson of Sudbury and wife Rebecca, "to show 
fatherly love and affection to my eldest son," two 20 
acre lots in Stow, and also for ;,^2oa second conveyance 
of 8 acres along Concord line; — Jan. 23, 1727 from 
S. Randall, 5 acres, "great pine Swamp ;" — Ap. 10, 
1727 from M. Whitney, 6 acres, 78 rods for ^35. The 
proprietors' book of Stow shows that on "Jan 10, 
i728/'9 Proprietors laid out to Abraham Gibson 4 acres 
by said Gibson's house" which most likely stood near 
the Center village, some distance from Pomciticut hill. 
His short military service as private reads thus : 
"Muster Roll of Capt. Nathan Bridgam & comp 
Troopers from Sept 18 to Oct 9 1725 — Abraham Gib-

his death. The inventory of his estate returned Jan. 
6, 1741, amounted to near ^1500, and his widow Mary 
was appointed administratrix A p. 20, 1741 with Rich- 
ard Whitney and " Timothy Gibson Jun'' " as bonds- 
men. Mrs. Gibson after July 6, 1745, m. Dea. Daniel 
Hapgood, selectman of Stow, see note under 14, and 
by whose will proved June 14, 1791, his homestead 
(east half of the old paternal plantation of 700 acres) 
was left to his wife Mary and their three children, and 
to "my beloved gr. son, Jacob Gibson of Stow, all my 
lands in Waterford, Cumberland Co. Maine, two lots 
300 — 400 acres." Shortly after iier second marriage 
Mrs. Hapgood made the following application : 

" To the Hou ble Judge of Probates for y'' County of Midd. These 
are to ask y*^ Favour y' you would please to appoiut Guardians for 
my Three youngest children who are under y'^ years of choice whose 
Names I here send according to y*^ Date of their primogeniture Viz 
Sarah Abraham & Ephraim Gibson y" children of my late husband 
Abraham Gibson late of Stow deca'' and It would be very agreeable 
to me If your Hon in Your Wisdom shall think proper to appoint 
my Hon*^ Father In, Law Timo Gibson Guardian for y" oldist of them 
and my Third Brother In Law Stephen Gibson of Stow Guardian for 
y'' other two. 

Stow April! 11 1746." 

As Stephen was the fifth brother-in-law in chrono- 
logical order, " my Third Brother In Law " probably 
referred to him as youngest of the three brothers-in-law 
then residing in Stow — Timothy jr., Samuel, Stephen ; 
for some reason the appointments were not made as 
requested, and Stephen Gibson gave a bond Ap. 14, 
1746, with Daniel Hapgood for surety, as guardian of 
Sarah and Ephraim ; also the same day Daniel Hap- 
good gave his bond, with Stephen Gibson surety, as 
guardian of Rebecca, " in i8th year and at her own 
election."

Capt. Davis, " the man who headed the first column 
against the King's troops in the revolutionary war," 
was early on the ground with his thirty-eight Acton 
minute-men, and in the hesitancy of the older ofiicers 
to attack the British regulars, drew his sword, saying 
" I am not afraid, I haven't a man that's afraid to go ; " 
receiving orders to lead the five companies (his own, 
two Concord, one Bedford, one Lincoln) he advanced 
towards the bridoe to the tune of the White Cockade

and was instantly shot ; his name does not appear upon 
revolutionary rolls as John Hayward, his ist lieutenant, 
immediately took command of the company and the 
rolls are in his name. In 1851 the state of Massachu- 
setts and town of Acton erected at Acton Center a 
monument commemorative of the engagement, and 
the remains of Capt. Davis were removed from Wood- 
land cemetery, the old burying ground in the southeast 
of the town, and together with those of Abner Hosmer 
and James Hayward were placed under the monument ; 
Acton has also proudly cherished the memory of its 
courageous young minute-man by sending the Davis 
Blues to the war of 1812 and the Davis Guards to the 
civil war.

to a nearly ^500 real and personal estate, the will giving " to 
brother Enos Fox jz lands and J2 negro boy — to dau Esther 
residue when 21 years old or on marriage ; " the latter occurred 
so early that Samuel Barrett, the guardian chosen by Esther, 
had short service ; pieces of her bridal dress (white and pink 
striped silk, the white dotted with small red buds) are still 
preserved. 

Lt. Gibson in early life was a schoolmaster ; that he 
was teaching- in Lnnenbnrg (Fitchburg since 1764) at 
the time of his majority but shortly returned to Stow 
as master of the parental homestead, is shown by the 
following deeds dated respectively Oct. 8, 1756 and Jan, 

18,1757: 

"Ezekiel and Mary Davis, Ephraim and Rebecca Hapgood, all 
of Acton, and Peter and Sarah Conant of Stow, to Abraham Gibson

of Luueuburg, laborer [teacher], for ^128, quit claim of estate of our 
father Abraham Gibson, being the estate of our mother, Mary 
Hapgood, from our grandmother Wheeler," etc. 

"Daniel Hapgood of Stow, yeoman, and Mary, his wife, quit 
claim of |< estate of Abraham Gibson of Stow, deceased [with 
other tracts and rights], formerly the estate of our father and 
mother. Deliverance and Mary Wheeler of Stow, to Abraham Gibson 
of Stow, yeoman," etc. 

A year or two after his marriage Lt. Gibson removed 
from Stow to Concord and about 1768 to Fitchburg, 
residing on a farm of 150 acres or more on the eastern 
slope of Pearl hill ; a portion of this farm he deeded 
Mar. 25, 1786 as follows : " I, Abraham Gibson of Fitch- 
burg, gentleman, in consideration of ^265 paid me by 
Jeremiah Kinsman of Ipswich, county of Essex, hus- 
bandman — a certain tract of land — containing 55 acres 
117 rods — with a house and barn on the same, consisting 
of Tillage, mowing, pasturage and wood land ; " also 
July 5, 1794, to the same person then of Fitchburg, 7-I 
acres adjoining the first purchase, " said Gibson reserv- 
ing liberty for the schoolhouse now standing on said 
land to remain there as long as the town shall support a 
town school." Besides property in Fitchburg where 
in 1 77 1 he was one of the largest taxpayers, he 
owned real estate in the adjacent town of Ashby. He 
was one of the five Gibsons among the forty-four Fitch- 
burg minute-men in 1775 and selectman 1778 and 1779 ; 
as his name disappears from the tax roll after 1791 he 
may have removed elsewhere that year although in the 
deed of 1794 to Jeremiah Kinsman he called himself of 
Fitchburg. 

Lt. Gibson was a soldier in the Fr. and Ind. war, his 
service recorded thus : " Muster Roll — Capt. Abijah Hall 
Comp. Col. Willard'sReg — in Exp. to Crown Pt. from 
May 9, 1759 to Jany 12, 1760, 2d Lt. Abraham Gibson, 
Stow — fr. May 9 to Jany 13 — 31 wks 2 da." He was 
also a revolutionary soldier — private, Capt. Ebenezer 
Woods' CO., Col. Asa Whitcomb's reg. of militia,

Mr. Gibson was frequently entered on records as

"Tom Concord," to distinguish him from his second 
cousin an older Thomas Gibson. He belonged to the 
Fitchbnrg train-band, and after his marriage continued 
to reside on Pearl hill, his farm separated from his 
father's by the road leading down to the old Spoflford

may have been the John Priest in Weymouth at au earlier date • 
that a "James Prist " of Weymouth was made freeman May 10'

who married Sara Allerton, settled in-Woburn and was father 
of the John who married Rachel Garfield. However uncertain 
Mr. Priest's ancestry, he was the soldier John Priest "of Wo 
burn Towne" in King Philip's war, and a comparatively youn^ 
man when in 16SS he removed from Woburu and located on a 
30 acre grant on the eastern side of Bare hill, east part of

Mr. Priest resided till 1811 in Rindge (Rowley'- 
Canada from 1690 nntil incorporated Feb. 11, 1768) when 
he removed from the town to Lnnenburg and in 1813 
and 1814 served as school committee ; after the death 
of his wife Rebecca he married, Nov. 17, 1814, Mrs. 
Phebe (Atherton) Sherman, and of two dang-liters by 
this marriage the elder died yonng and the other, 
Abigail, born 1819, married Luke Carter of Leomin- 
ster, Mass. 

He was a revolutionary soldier; in the absence, 
however, of family confirmatory records it is perplex- 
ing to identify him among the Lancaster John Priests 
whose names appear on official rolls in the IMassachu- 
.setts archives (Boston) — the private in Capt. Hartwell's 
CO., Col. Dike's reg. July 10, 1776, and if so, marching 
with his father to Dorchester heights — the trooper in 
Col. Sheldon's light dragoons — the fifer in Col. Denny's 
reg. — the private in Col. Marshall's reg. who on the 
retreat to Fort Ann from Schene(Skeensborough, now 
White hall on Lake Champlain) was disabled and sub- 
sequently pensioned ; unfortunately the pension rec- 
ords of 1787, those for disability, were destroyed by 
fire in 1814 and the earliest extant are those of Mar. 
18, 1818 for " 9 mos. on Continental establishment."

owner ; he resided prior to 1805 at 105 Orange street 
(now part of Washington) but that year purchased the 
large house and garden, 15 Court street (south side near

estate and by endorsements, he fell ill and died in the 
prime of active life. His estate was administered upon

ezer Farley, the inventory showing the amount of 
$261,000 ; on the same date Gideon Snow was appointed

IV Timothy Gibson (Capt.) of Sudbury, Groton and 
Stow, Mass. and Henniker, N. H., second child of Dea. 
Timothy i) and Rebecca (Gates) Gibson, b. Stow, Jan. 
20, 1702/3; d. Henniker, Jan. 18, 1782; m. Dec. 29, 
1725, Persis Rice (b. Sudbury, Jan. 10, 1706/7, d. 
Henniker, Mar. 22, 1781), dan. of Dea. Jonathan and 
Anne (Darby) Rice, gr. dau. of Joseph Rice, and gt. gr. 
dan. of Dea. Edmund Rice, the English pioneer »«in 
Sudbury in 1639 the year of its incorporation, and in 
that part of the town set off in 1780 as East Sudbury 
and since 1835 named Wayland. 

Capt. Gibson was very young when his parents 
moved from Stow to Sudbury and in some inexpli- 
cable way his birth is entered on Sudbury copied 
records although not on the original ; there is, how- 
ever, no question that he was born in Stow even if 
there is no confirmatory town record, as the family did 
not remove from Stow to Sudbury till after June 21, 
1703, the date of the deed made by Mr. Abraham 
Holman of Stow " to show my love unto and care of 
Timothy Gibson [Dea.] now living with me & hath 



114 JOHN GIBSON 

done from a child." His boyhood and early manhood 
were spent in Sndbnry and he never occnpied house- 
lot 33 in Lunenburg, Mass., bought of Ephraim Sautle 
in 1723 by "Timothy Gibson for son Timothy," the 
father retaining it for another son. 

About the date of his marriage he removed to Groton, 
locating most likely on property which he purchased 
Dec. IT, 1724 from two parties, one tract of 30 acres 
from S. Scripture for ;^35, the other of 25 acres from 
"eleven persons " for ;^30, both deeds describing him as 
" Timothy Gibson Jr. of Sudbury, yeoman ; " between 
Dec. 23, 1729 and Oct. 7, 1730 he made three other 
purchases (12^ acres) in Groton, the deeds naming 
him " Timothy Gibson of Groton." Whether he re- 
mained in the town any length of time after 1730 is not 
clear, nor do Groton records give the birth of children 
after that date. It is certain that early in 1733 he was 
living in Stow shown from the sale made May 7, 1733 
by "John Forster to Timothy Gibson Jr. of Stow, 
yeoman, 134 J acres in Stow including Cornet's pond, 
the south side of Elsabeth [Assabet] river, southerly of 
^ a great brushy hill [a nameless hill southeast of Boon's 

liill], and bounded east by the highway, north and 
west by Dea. Nathaniel Hapgood, and southeasterly on 
Marlboro line to Marlboro Corner, house, barn, &c. — 
also all my right in the meeting house," and this prop- 
erty in the southeast of Stow was his home for the 
next forty years ; he further increased his Stow acquisi- 
tions by Philip Brown selling Ap. 28, 1763 for ;^4o, 
some 21 acres to "Timothy Gibson of Stow, gentle- 
man." That he owned real estate in Lunenburg is 
seen by a deed for 20 acres dated Jan. 3, 1774 and 
given by his son "Abel Gibson and wife Mary of 
Lunenburg, to Timothy Gibson of Stow," which 20 
acres were doubtless a portion of Mary's inheritance 
from her father Arrington Gibson of Lunenburg, He 
was a prominent person in Stow — selectman 1734, 1735, 



AND HIS dp:scendants. 115 

1736 and 1739, constable 1745 and probably holder of 
some military office as he was always called Capt. 
Gibson ; he was also an active member of First church, 
joining his father May 17, 1736, in the negative vote 
for a £60 appropriation to Rev. John Gardner, and on 
Jan. 27, 1755 buying the " north east corner of pew 
ground," another version worded : "January 27"' 1755.. 
Capt. Tim. Gibson bought the north east corner pew in 
the old church." As eldest of the sons surviving Dea. 
Gibson in 1757, he was of great help to his step-mother 
Mrs. Submit Gibson who by her will dated Sept. 24, 
1758, gave among other small bequests to connections, 
"my mother's gold ring to Capt, Timothy Gibson, to 
wife Persis, Taffety gown, and neck laces to daughters 
Persisand Lucy," and named him residuary legatee and 
executor. 

Early in 1774 when over seventy-one years old, Capt. 
Gibson removed to Henniker on Contoocook river, a 
promising New Hampshire town incorporated Nov. 10, 
1768, his farm lying at the foot of Craney hill south 
side the Contoocook ; his patriotic and beneficial influ- 
ence was felt in the neighborhood, and until his death 
he rendered service to the revolutionary struggle 
especially by pecuniary aid ; he was among the fifty- 
one signers of the "association test" called for by 
resolution of Continental congress of Mar. 14, 1776, for- 
warded to Henniker Ap. 12, 1776 and framed as 
follows : 

" In cousequeuce of the Resolutiou of the Hon'''* Congress and to 
show our determination in joining our American brethren in defend- 
ing the lives, liberties and properties of the inhabitants of the United 
Colonies, we the subscribers do hereby solemnly engage and promise 
that we will to the utmost of our power, at the risque of our lives 
and fortunes, with arms oppose the hostile proceedings of the british 
fleets and armies against the United American Colonies." 

He must have been buried in one of the two old 
cemeteries, the earlier laid out Mar. 26, 1770 in the 
southerly part of the town, and the other about 1775

near the southeast corner ; no stone to his memory, 
however, is found in either ground though a careful 
search has been made by Coh L. W. Cogswell, historian

Sergt. Gibson on Ap. 28, 1769, then nearly sixteen 
years old but by the usual court entry " upwards of 
14 years," selected Ebenezer Marshall as guardian, and 
as early as 1775, if not earlier, was living in Bellingham ; 
in 1779 he moved to the adjoining Milford (then part of 
Mendon) and for the next four years made it his home 
at intervals ; that he and his family were in Warner, 
N. H. late in 1781 is seen by an entry in the record 
book of the Milford Congregational church, the East 
parish church of old Mendon organized some 70 years

after the incorporation of the town May 15, 1667 : 
" Thaddeus Gibson, Elizabeth his wife and two children, 
lyois [Lewis] and Mary, came from Warner, Hampshire 
S'" to reside in Milford, Jan'y lo"* 1782. Taken in by 
James Sumner," 

In 1783 he settled in Henniker on a 300 acre farm in 
the west of the town known as Westboro Corner and, 
with the exception of a two years' stay in Warner after 
his wife's death in 1819, made Henniker his permanent 
home, leaving the farm for "the village" on returning 
from Warner. He always took an active interest in 
both secular and religious affairs — selectman 1799, one 
of the thirty-three persons in 1801 voting "no" to the 
settlement of Rev. Moses Sawyer, and in 1807 on the 
committee for building schoolhouses. Under the will 
of his father-in-law he became joint owner with his wife 
Elizabeth and her sister, of considerable real estate in 
Milford, and Nov. 7, 1795 sold advantageously several 
tracts of this land "bequeathed to us by our father, 
James Sumner, deceased." 

He was a revolutionary soldier — private, Capt. Sam- 
uel Cobb's CO., Col. Joseph Reed's reg. Mass. militia 
(Worcester county) May 6 to Nov. 6, 1775, served at 
Roxbury ; sergt., Capt. Samuel Warren's co., Col. 
Joseph Reed's reg. Jan. 1776 to Feb. 1777, service at 
White Plains, Trenton, Princeton and elsewhere ; pri- 
vate, Capt. Amos Ellis' co.. Col. Benjamin Hawse's 
reg. Sept. 25 to Oct, 31, 1777, Rhode Island service ; 
private, Capt. Jacob Haskin's co.. Col, John Jacobs' 
reg, July 2, 1778 to Jan. i, 1779, "the men raised in 
Bellingham by Resolve of June 12, 1778, and paid 
bounty by the selectmen." He became a revolutionary 
pensioner under the act passed Mar. 18, 1818 "for 
service in the War for 9 mos. on Continental establish- 
ment," his pension beginning Ap. 4, 1818, for some 
reason discontinued, restored Ap. i, 1823 ^^^ ^^^ force 
at the time of his death ; there is nothing to show that

he came in under the act of 17S6 " for wounds and dis- 
abilities " as no public pension documents of that date 
are in existence. In his own affidavits he stated that 
"he enlisted in the spring of 1777 at Bellingham for 
S mos. in Mass. line under Capt. Sabin Mann, marched 
to Rhode Island, chosen sergt., served 8 mos. and then 
dismissed," but could furnish no documentary evidence ; 
he had, however, the following valuable testimony for 
service in 1776 : 

" I certifN' that Thaddeiis Gibson served as Serg*. in my Co. in Col. 
Joseph Reed's Reg^ in the Continental Annj' in the year 1776 —

Capt. Gibson before reaching his majority served in 
the Fr. and Ind. war, his record reading thus : " Muster 
Roll— Capt. Abijah Hall Comp. Col. Willard's Reg— 
in Exp. to Crown Pt. from May 9, 1759 to Jany 12, 
1760, Timothy Gibson, Sergt, Stow — fr. May 2 to Nov. 
27 — 30 wks," and perhaps this service as sergeant may 
have given rise to his familiar appellation of " Captain 
Gibson." 

Until his marriage, if not afterwards, he remained 
one of the paternal household ; his first purchase in his 
native town was not till Feb. 19, 1770 when he bought 
for ^300 from John Gordon and wife Mary " 35 acres 
in Stow, estate of our father Ebenezer Graves, | house 
and the mill " — the site of this old mill on the east side 
the Assabet being only a few rods below the present 
dam of Rock Bottom woolen mills near Rock Bottom 
(village) in the south of the town ; another purchase, 
the deed dated Sept. i, 1773 and describing him as 
"Timothy Gibson Jr. of Stow, yeoman," was from 
Jonas Temple of Marlboro, conveying " 30 acres by 
White's pond between Stow and Marlboro," the pond 
retaining its name to this day. 

On the removal of his parents from Stow to Henni- 
ker, probably in the spring of 1774, he accompanied 
them and resided in their home at the foot of Craney

Mr. Gibson remained in Stow some little time after 
his marriage, but was a resident of Lnnenburg as early 
as Jan. 3, 1774 shown by a deed of that date to his father 
for 20 acres, and as late as Ap. 14, 1776 when "Abel 
Gibson of Lnnenburg, husbandman," joined by wife 
Mary, conveyed to her brother " Timothy Gibson of 
Lunenburg, 19 acres with a dwelling house," doubtless 
a portion of the Arrington Gibson estate in the south 
of the town ; directly after this sale he moved to Hen- 
niker and was there in time to sign the " association 
test" received from Continental congress after Ap. 12, 
1776.

Poll, 2 cows — i-i year old. Taxes 2/8" [^2 8 s.]; 
either in this year or the next he and his family 
removed to New York and before locating in Solon 
resided in the Susquehanna valley at Butternuts and 
Unadilla (Otsego county) and German (Chenango 
county).

until his untimely death, the result of an accident 
while riding horseback, took an active interest in pub- 
lic affairs both civil and military — selectman 1787, 
1790, 1791, 1796, 1797 and 1799, probably captain the 
Henniker "alarm list" called for by Order of 1776, 
and later commander of the town company, one of the 
so-called " slam bang " companies; he was, however, 
prevented by disability from serving as a soldier in 
the revolutionary war.

of the paternal home on Pomciticut hill in Stow, 
followed his brother Capt. John to Lunenburg ( " y*

made his home either in Mudd}' River or Roxbury, Mass. (the 
former set off from Boston as Brookline in 1705, the latter incor- 
porated in 1630 and in 1868 annexed to Boston); on his arrival 
in Lancaster he bought and occupied a part of the homestead 
of Rev. Joseph Rowlandson whose wife Marj' is familiar to 
posterity by the story of her Indian captivity in King Philip's 
war of 1675 and 1676. Mr. Goss must have been a man of 
public spirit and valor as during the Indian raids of 1692 he 
held a garrison of nine men at North river bridge (Lancaster).

Dea. Gibson remained in Stow after the family re- 
moval there from Sndbnry in his boyhood, and always 
resided on the paternal homestead on Pomciticnt hill 
(now Summer hill and since 1871 in IMaynard). His 
first real estate was probably that deeded Sept. 29, 1740, 
shortly after his majority, by " Timothy Gibson of 
Stow, yeoman, and wife Rebecca, to my son Stephen of 
Stow, yeoman, for ^100 and fatherly regards — two 
lots in Stow, one, 5 acres bounded north by Concord 
road. South and West, by my own land ; the other, 25 
acres bounded east on Assabeth river." Again, Mar. 
31, 1747, his parents deeded him for ^152 and services 
to be rendered, " my house [the homestead] and 50 
acres in Stow, bounded by Concord highway on north, 
east by Stephen Gibson's and Stephen Houghton's 
land, south by John Jewell's, west by Gardner's, also 
I acre in Sudbury . . . reserving three rooms for our- 
selves and stabling for three cows ; " on June 9, 1752 he 
increased his Sudbury property by buying for /'149 
5 s., some 20 acres in two tracts from Stephen Hough- 
ton of Stow. He was also a large landholder in Ashby, 
Mass. (Lunenburg till 1764, then Fitchburg till 1767) ; 
among purchases — one, June 9, 1763 for ;^8o, from 
William Benjamin, " 100 acres, house &c. in Lunen- 
burg ; " — another, May 4, 1768, from William Flagg 
of Ashby, 12 acres still known as the " Flagg piece ; " — 



236 .1011 X GIB80X 

a third, Jan. 5, 1771, for ^88, from Brown and Blaney 
of Salem, no acres; — a fourth, for ^10, from his son- 
in-law Stephen Barker of Ashby, ih acre ; doubtless 
these purchases were the lands occupied by the three 
of his sons, Rev. Stephen, John and Abraham who 
lived on adjacent farms in the new town ; in ad- 
dition to his Ashby acquisitions he owned 100 or more 
acres in what was the north of Fitchburg till 1829 
when ceded to Ashby. He left no will, and as his sons, 
Rev. Stephen, Arrington and Abraham, declined ad- 
ministration, Augustus Tower gave bonds as adminis- 
trator Ap. 17, 1807 ; the estate, then wholly personal, 
amounted to near $500 and in 181 1 was divided 
among the eight surviving children and the children 
of the deceased daughter Elizabeth Piper. 

Dea. Gibson was a man of sound judgment and 
executive ability, often chosen appraiser and in 1746 
selected guardian of Sarah and Ephraim Gibson, chil- 
dren of his deceased brother Abraham ; a faithful 
attendant, communicant and deacon of First church, 
and on the rebuilding of the edifice, purchasing Jan. 
17, 1755 " next to minister's pew, west of the pulpit ; " 
a loyal and patriotic citizen of his town and country; 
a dutiful son, his parents voluntarily sharing their 
home with him and his widowed step-mother Mrs. 
Submit Gibson returning his respectful attentions by 
little legacies to his children — " a gold ring " to Sarah, 
and to Rebecca, Arrington and Timothy each, " a 
pewter plate ; " a loving husband " living respectably 
in conjugal happiness with his first and only wife more 
than 60 vears." 

He was a revolutionary soldier — private, Capt. Wil- 
liam Whitcomb's co. , Col. James Prescott's reg. of 
militia (Middlesex county), marched from Stow Ap. 19, 
1775 on Lexington alarm, served 3 days; also his name 
appears on the alarm list (Dec. 1776) of Capt. Benjamin 
Munroe's co. (6th), Col. Ezekiel Howe's reg. (4tli

Mr. Gibson, one of the three brothers who resided on 
adjacent farms in Ashby, settled there shortly after his 
marriage on the property deeded him as late as Mar. 
16, 1779, by " Stephen Gibson of Stow, yeoman, and 
wife Sarah, to John Gibson of Ashby, husbandman, for 
5 s. and love and affection for my third son, 80 acres in 
Ashby, bounded west on line between Ashby and 
Ashburnham to line of Stephen Gibson Jr., including 
house, &c." On Jan. 19, 1799, about which time he 
probably left Ashby, he sold to Josiah Bright for $1,000 
this farm of 80 acres hing both sides the highway and 
bounded north by his brother Abraham's, south by his 
brother Rev, Stephen's and west by Ashburnham (Dor- 
chester Canada from 1690 until incorporated Feb, 22, 
1765) ; in 1801 it again became Gibson property but of 
another branch of the family who still hold it in pos- 
session.

240 JOHN GIBSON 

Rev. Mr. Gibson, one of the three brothers who re- 
sided on adjacent farms in Ashb}-, was in the new town 
prior to 1770 ; he settled on the 80 acres inclnding the 
" Flag-g piece " deeded Ap. 8, 1773 by " Stephen Gibson 
of Stow, }'eonian, to Stephen Gibson of Ashby, hns- 
bandnian, and in consideration of 5 s. and love and affec- 
tion for my eldest son. " This farm, the most southerly 
of the three, l)ingboth sides the highway and bounded 
north by his brother John's (the Asburnham road be- 
tween), south b>' Flint's land and west by Ashburnham 
line, remained his home until his death ; two years 
later the propert}' was bought by a Gibson nephew 
whose family retained it till 1896 when it was sold to 
strangers. He was well fitted for a life of activity and 
usefulness, beginning on his arrival in his adopted 
town to hold public offices — framer of " first rates " or 
tax list, selectman 1770 and 1775, town clerk Mar. i, 
1775-Mar. I, 1776, moderator 1782, and always taking 
a deep interest in the religious and educational growth 
and general welfare of the people. 

He was a revolutionary soldier — ist It., capt. John 
Jones' CO., Col. James Prescott's reg. of militia (Middle- 
sex county), marched from Ashby Ap. 20, 1775 on Lex- 
ington alarm, served 7 days ; also his name is on the 
list of commissioned officers of Mass. militia as ist 
lieutenant, Capt. James Bennett's co. (9th), Col. Oliver 
Prescott's reg. (6th Middlesex county), chosen by the 
company and accepted by the Council Ap. 24, 1776. 

Rev. Air. Gibson was brought up a Congregationalist 
and on his removal to Ashby became a member of First 
church in P'itchburg organized Jan 7, 1768; that he 
experienced a change of religious views is shown by 
the church \'oting Se])t. 6, 1776, "to send the pastor 
[Rev. John Payson] and brothers Walker and Good- 
ridge, to discourse witli Brother Stephen Gibson and 
wife for absenting themselves from our commnnion," 
and by his reply that "he absented himself because he 



AND HIS dp:scendants. 241 

disliked the principles of the church in baptizing in- 
lants, " etc. True to his conscientious convictions, he 
accepted the Baptist faith, not that of the " profest " but 
the Freewill sect, and being "gifted in this direction" 
he began preaching to those who gathered to hear him 
and in any building selected for the occasion ; he did 
not, however, withdraw from First church, and on 
Mar. 8, 1783 a committee was appointed " to admonish 
Brother Stephen Gibson of Ashb}' for absenting from 
worship ; " this was followed by the church convening 
June I, 1783 and voting " to Reject Stephen Gibson 
from his relation to us for his absenting from us and Ir- 
regular & disorderly conduct in preaching from place to 
place;" but he continued to jpreach for many years either 
in private dwellings or schoolhouses in both Ashby and 
'Ashburnham and occasionally in Page's schoolhouse 
in Fitchburg, and in consistence with his unbelief in 
salaried clergymen, preached " with more acceptance 
than compensation." It was not until 1810, two years 
before his death, that his society then worshiping in 
its own meetinghouse in Fitchburg near Ashby line, 
was incorporated as the First Baptist society of Fitch- 
burg and Ashby.

on the western slope of Page hill in the town incorpo- 
rated as New Ipswich Sept. 9, 1762. In 1823 ^^^ bought 
the old Jeremiah Prichard property, " South Ranges — 
Range V, Lot 4," about i\ mile eastward and a little 
north of his farm, and by further purchases enlarged 
this future homestead to 200 or more acres ; his com- 
fortable farmhouse so full of hospitality to all beneath 
its roof and such a place of wonder and delight to the 
voung folks of the family, was destroyed by fire some 
}ears ago and never rebuilt. 

He was endowed with a native genius and versa- 
tile talent, the latter preserved and developed in the 
mechanical pursuits of several of his descendants ; for 
more than half a century he held the respect due a 
skilled agriculturalist, a successful physician and an 
honorable and benevolent gentleman.

mecliaiiical pursuits, engaged in the millwright busi- 
ness under firm name F. Sheldon & Co.; he was one 
of the city school board, a zealous Sunday-school 
teacher, a faithful attendant of the C. C. church and

284 JOHN GIBSON 

Dea, Gibson lived in the northwest of Fitchburg 
which was ceded to Ashby five years after his death ; 
his farm was bounded west by Ashburnham line and 
north by Flint's land separating him from the home of 
his brother Rev. Stephen Gibson, one of the three 
brothers residing on adjacent farms in Ashby. In ad- 
dition to this homestead of more than lOO acres, partly 
if not wholly the gift of his father, he owned real estate 
in Ashby, purchasing 8 acres in 1782 and on June 27, 
1783, the property known as "'the Woodbury farm;" 
he also bought in Acton, Jan. 17, 1786 for ^200, some 
" 158 acres, house, barn, &c." and Mar. 26, 1790, a 54 
acre tract. 

In 1775 he was one of the five Gibsons among the 
forty-four Fitchburg minute-men ; at that date he was 
; a member of First church (Congregational) but changed 
his religious views probably about 1776 when his 
brother and sister, Rev. Stephen Gibson and Mrs. 
Sarah Puffer, changed theirs, and in 1783 his name 
appeared among the thirteen " profest baptists asking 
rebate of ministers' rates;" this small community 
later held religious services in the " Lord's barn " 
which stood on Dean hill from about 1784 to 1826 
and was occupied by the Baptists, Methodists and Uni- 
versalists until the town rebuilt First church in 1796. 
Dea. Gibson must have again changed his views to 
those of the Freewill-Baptists as he became a deacon 
in his brother's church.

of Dea. Stephen 111 and Sarah (Goss) Gibson, b. Stow, 
Feb. 4, 1756; d. Stow, June 21, 1815 ; m. Feb. 12, 
1778 (Stow records), Rachel Longley (b. Bolton, Mass., 
July 13, 1757, d. Stow, Ap. 5, 1825), ^^^- of Robert 
and Anna (Whitcomb) Longley of Bolton. 

Mr. Gibson was a revolutionary soldier — private, 
Capt. William Whitcomb' s co.. Col. James Prescott's 
reg. of militia (Middlesex county), marched from Stow 
on Lexington alarm of Ap. 19, 1775, served 16 days; 
private, Capt. Caleb Brook's co. , Col. Nicholas Dike's 
reg., "3 mos. service to Dec. i, 1776 at Dorchester 
heights;" corp., same company and regiment, Dec. 
1776 to Feb. 1777, guarding stores at Boston. 

He was a lifelong resident of his native town and on 
the homestead of his father and gr. father on Pomciticut 
hill, deeded him June 30, 1785 as follows: "Stephen 
Gibson of Stow, yeoman, and wife Sarah, to Arrington 
Gibson of Stow, husbandman, for love I bair my fourth 
sone Arrington, & also 5 s. half of my lands in Stow & 
half of the seller and house and half of the barn to his 
hairs forever ; " he was also a large land owner in P'itch- 
burg, Mass. and Dublin, N. H., his father giving him 
in the former town Jan. 7, 1786, "in consideration of 
love and 5 s. one-half of my land lying in Fitchburg in 
the county of Worcester, adjoining to Samuel Gibson's 
land [Arrington' s brother] it being the east end of the 
lot of said Samuel's land which I gave to him," etc.; 
again, giving him Sept. 29, 1801, " one-half for quantity 
and quality of a certain tract of Pasture land lying in 
the town of Fitchburg, the whole containing by esti- 
mate Thirty-two acres, bounded Westerly on land of 
Samuel Gibson," etc. Bv his will dated May 13, 1815,

he gave to " wife Rachel, use and improvement of my 
household furniture during her life, & at her death to 
be divided to the children, Stephen, Eli, Robert & 
Rachel," also " Wife ^ part of all my lands and build- 
ings within this Commonwealth," which one-third 
part after her decease was to be given to Eli and Robert 
to whom were bequeathed the other two-thirds uncon- 
ditionally; he left an estate of nearly $10,000, the realty 
in Stow (including the homestead of 80 acres appraised 
at $3,500), in Fitchburg and in Dublin amounting to 
over $7,000. After his death the heirs retained for a 
few years the old home of four generations handed 
down from sire to son, but since 1823 it has ceased to 
be a Gibson possession; the house is gone long ago, its 
site and that of the well, however, are still discernible.

Mr. Gibson received under his father's will, jointly 
with his twin brother Robert, personal estate, also real 
in New Hampshire and eventually all the lands and 
buildings in Massachusetts. By purchasing in 1820 
his brother's half interest he became sole possessor of 
the nearly one century old Gibson home which Feb. 
22, 1823 (then containing some 90 acres), he sold to 
Mrs. Lucy Smith of Sudbury. On May 29, 1826 Mrs. 
Smith deeded the entire property to her son-in-law Isaac 
Maynard whose sons are the present owners and occu- 
pants; the place is now known as Summer Hill farm, 
the name of the hill is changed from the Indian Pom- 
citicut to Summer hill, and both farm and hill since

Mrs. Abigail (Darby or Stearns?) Bennett (d. Grafton, 
Nov. 26, 1808 aged 81 years, bur. beside her husband). 
Mr. Gibson was one of "the Gibson brothers" of 
local history and the third of the four who settled in 
Lunenburg ; he was not much over age when he bade 
good by to the parental homestead on Pomciticut hill 
in Stow and followed his brothers Capt. John and Ar- 
rington to Lunenburg (" y^ South Town" prior to 
Aug. I, 1728). He settled in the westerly part of the 
town set off Feb. 3, 1764 as Fitchburg, and on the " 115 
acres more or less " deeded him by his father Oct. 25, 
1744, " the Southerly part of my Land at Pearl Hill 
... in consideration of Love and good will which 
I have and do bare to my beloved son Isaac Gibson of 
Lunenburg provided allways my said son Isaac shall 
allow one hundred pounds received as part of his Por- 
tion out of my Estate Equal to one hundred pounds 
given by me to any of his Elder Brothers before the 
Date of this Deed ;" his house, " Fort Gibson " in the 
Indian raid of 1748, stood on the eastern slope of the 
hill and is still standing in good preservation, the prop- 
erty owned by strangers since about 1873. 



330 JOHN GIKSON 

He was a man of great size, strength and conrage ; 
among several anecdotes told of his personal daring is 
his well-known encounter with a bear whose cub he 
was carrying off, the combatants rolling down Pearl 
hill together, each victorious, each vanquished, the 
bear losing her offspring, the captor showing on his 
person through life the marks of the struggle! 

Mr. Gibson was always an important person in his 
adopted home — scout in the Indian troubles of 1748, 
selectman 1 767-1 770, 1 774-1 777, among the thirteen 
largest taxpayers in 1771, chairman of the committee 
of seven Dec. i, 1773 " to respond to the Boston let- 
ter " and on the committee in 1774 " to prepare instruc- 
tions for the guidance of the town's representative in 
the General court," one of the five Gibsons of the forty- 
four Fitchburg minute-men in 1775, town moderator 
1777. 

He was a revolutionary soldier — private, Capt. Eben- 
ezer Woods' co.. Col. Asa Whitcomb'sreg. of militia, 
marched from Fitchburg on Ivcxington alarm of Ap. 
19, 1775, served 11 days. 

There is no record when he removed to Grafton 
(Thomlinson under charters of 1754 and 1763 and 
Tomlinsou from 1788 to Oct. 31, 1792 when the name 
Grafton was bought at auction); that it was between 
Dec. 26, 1786 and Sept. 4, 1790 is shown by an agree- 
ment made on the first date by " Isaac of Fitchburg" 
and his son "Jonathan of Thomlinson," and by a 
power of attorney given on the later date by " Isaac of 
Tomlinsou" to his son "Jacob of Fitchburg;" the 
removal was probably in the spring of 1787 as in 1785 
he paid his last Fitchburg real and poll taxes and in 
1786 his last personal tax ; he did not, however, with- 
draw his membership from First church (Fitchburg) 
till Oct. 16, 1 791 when at " y' request of Isaac Gibson 
the church voted to give him a dismission from his 
special relation to y* m. and a recommendation to the 
church of Christ in Thombleston " [Tomlinson].

Mr. Gibson was a revolutionary soldier — private, 
Capt. Ebenezer Wood's co. , Col. Asa Whitcomb's reg. 
of militia, marched from Fitchburg on Lexington 
alarm, served 11 days (not the private in Capt. John 
Jones' CO., ''Col. James Prescott's reg. marching from

record but which is disclaimed by the writer, and the 
correct record accepted by James F. D. Garfield, esq., 
the present Fitchburg revolutionary authority); private, 
Capt. Abijah Wyman's co., Col. William Prescott's 
reg. Ap. 30, 1775 until his death at Bunker hill. On 
Capt. Wyman's muster roll dated Aug. i, 1775, is 
written after the name John Gibson : " kild in Battle 
June 17*'' as supposed," and on Capt. Wyman's returns 
of Oct. 3, 1775, after John Gibson's name : "Died June 
17." To quote, "his remains were not recognized 
among the slain, but the last seen of him was in the 
hottest of the fight when, his ammunition having failed, 
he was beating back the enemy with the breach of his 
gun . . . the only man from Fitchburg known to 
have been slain in the revolution." On Ap. 23, 1776 
David Goodridge, Isaac Gibson and Joseph Walker, 
selectmen of Fitchburg, addressed the following letter, 
the original found in the Massachusetts archives : 

"To the Committee of Cloathiug for the Colony of Massachusetts 
Bay — Gentlemen : This may certify to you that John Gibson who 
was supposed to be killed in the battle of Bunker Hill, had his last 
place of residence at Fitchburg, and said Gibson belonged to Capt 
Abijah Wyman's company in Col William Prescott's Reg. and the 
said Gibson has not drawn a coat nor any money in lue thereof,

and there is no administrator on said Gibson's estate. Therefore 
we desire you should pay to some one of us the subscribers, or 
our order, the sum of tweuty-five shillings for the benefit of the 
heirs of the said deceased, agreeable to a resolve of the General 
Assembly." 

The city of Boston erected June 17, 1S89, as a memo- 
rial to the patriots who fell at Bunker hill, two double- 
faced bronze tablets in Winthrop square (Charlestown), 
the front looking towards the square and the reverse, 
Adams street; on the front of one is engraved "John 
Gibson, Fitchburg."

tennial celebration one of his descendants carried a 
Hessian drum captured at the battle. 

On his removal to Grafton he located on the hills in 
"the middle-of-the-town," and under town entry of 
Mar. 4, 1793 "Ens. Jonathan Gibson" was chosen 
constable and collector but was allowed to hire some 
one to serve in his place. 

By the agreement of Dec. 26, 1786 his father and

though the Secretary of War declined to have 
her mustered, perhaps for the reason stated in the 
following letter signed by President Lincoln and 
dated Nov. 10, 1864: 

"This lady says she would be appointed chaplain of the 
1st Wisconsin Heavy Artillery, only that she is a female. 
The President has not legally anything to do with such a 
question, but he has no objection to her appointment. 

A. L/incoln." 

Congress passed a bill Mar. 3, 1869 granting 
her chaplain's pay for the time of service ; it 
was not, however, till Mar. 7, 1876 that Miss 
Gibson received from the U. S. treasurer John 
C. New, $1,210.56, the amount in full.

Mass., Feb. 14, 1725; d. Fitclibiirg, July 27, 1800; bur. 
in South Street cemetery (accepted as a " bueringyard " 
1756), his gravestone inscribed: " Capt. — Reuben 
Gibson — died July 27, 1800 — ^t. 76;" m. at Sud- 
bury, Nov. 13, 1746 (pub. Sept. II, 1746), Lois Smith 
(b. Sudbury, Nov. i, 1726, d. Fitchburg, Nov. 22, 1816,

rectly entered " widow Lois Gibson 90 " on First church 
records), dau. of Thomas and Elizabeth Smith, and gr. 
dau. of John and Sarah (Hunt) Smith of Sudbury. 

Capt. Gibson was one of "the Gibson brothers" of 
local history and the last of the four who settled in 
Lunenburg ; he was probably not of age when he bade 
farewell to the parental homestead on Pomciticut hill in 
Stow, followed his brothers Capt. John, Arrington and 
Isaac to Lunenburg and located on Pearl hill, on a 
farm of 100 acres or more deeded by his father Oct. 25, 
1744: 

"I, Timothy Gibson of Stow, County of Middlesex in New Eng- 
land, yeoman, in Consideration of love and good will and affection I 
have and do bare to my beloved son, Reuben Gibson Jr [junior mean- 
ing a minor] of said Stow, Husbandman ... a Certain Tract of 
Land Situate Lying and being in Lunenburg and it is bounded 
Southerly by the Divisionall Line between him and his Brother, Isaac 
Gibson and is bounded all otherways as it stands Recorded in the 
Proprieters Book of Records for Lunenburg, provided allways my said 
son Reuben Shall allow one hundred Pounds Received of my Estate 
as part of his portion equal to one hundred Pounds Given by me to 
any of his Elder Brothers before the Date of this Deed . . . I set 
my Hand and Seal this twenty fifth day of October Annoque Domini, 
One Thousand Seven hundred and forty-four and in the Eighteenth 
year of his Majesty's [George II] Reign." 

This was Capt. Reuben's home until his death 
although in 1769 he and Isaac leased together some 
200 acres of their lands for gold mining purposes; 
shortly after 1863 his heirs sold the property to strang- 
ers and about 1892 the house built in 1746 or earlier, 
was torn down. 

He was a man of great size, strength and physical

courage, and of such enterprise and force of character 
that he was a very important person both in old Lunen- 
burg and the new Fitchburg after its incorporation 
Feb. 3, 1764 — selectman on the first board Mar. 5, 1764, 
surveyor of highways 1767, among the thirteen largest 
taxpayers in 1771, one of the committee of seven on cor- 
respondence Dec. I, 1773, constable 1775, chairman of 
the committee of five on safety and correspondence 1776, 
collector 1781, probably captain of a company as town 
records call him "Cap' Gibson" after 1772. 

He was one of the five Gibsons among the forty- four 
Fitchburg minute-men in 1775, also a revolutionary 
soldier — sergt., Capt. Ebenezer Woods' co. , Col. Asa 
Whitcomb's reg. of militia, marched from Fitchburg 
on Lexington alarm of Ap. 19, 1775, served 11 days. 

By his will dated Mar. 10, 1797 (" the twenty first yeare 
of the independency of America") and allowed Sept. 2, 
1800, Capt. Gibson left his household goods to his 
children equally, to Arrington, the only unmarried 
child, " my land and buildings by him freely to enjoy 
after the decease of myself and wife, on condition of my 
said son Arrington faithfully providing for myself and 
wife all necessarys of life both in helth and sickness, 
and also at death to bury myself and wife in a deacent 
and Christian form and manner," and one dollar to 
each of the seven married children — " for the love I 
have to my daughter Billings . . . for the love I bare 
to my sons Reuben, Abraham, Thomas, Bezaliel, Isaac 
& Ephraim Gibson One dollar to each and every one 
of them at our decease ; " the appraisement, made by 
his nephew Rev. Stephen Gibson and two others, 
showed an estate of $1,100 real and $309.19 movable 
property.
